News Image
Film Scanning and Image Restoration manufacturer Cintel International has announced a range of three ‘Film2Film’ 2K/4K Image Restoration Workflow packages for Film Archives and Restoration companies.
The ‘film in’ part of each workflow is the diTTo evolution 2K/4K film scanner from Cintel which has unique optical dust and scratch concealment tools as well as pin registration and non-pin capabilities. The ‘film out’ function is provided by CCG’s DefinityHD film recorder. Between these processes, each ‘Film2Film’ package includes Cintel’s imageMill2 real time 2K restoration system, including Grace film grain and image noise management, Steady image stabilisation and Origin dust and scratch reduction, plus individual selections of storage, monitoring and colour correction tools suited to different tasks and requirements:
  • ‘Film2Film300’ is the basic package which includes the new colourflow colour correction and timeline management tool for imageMill2 plus 18Tbytes of storage. ‘Film2Film 300’ is available delivered and fully installed anywhere in the world for just £300K
  • The ‘Film2Film400’ package takes the contents of the 300 package and adds the sophistication and power of Rain colour correction from Marquise Technologies, a fibre channel network including a total of 24Tbytes Raid storage and full HD monitoring. This package is available at £400K delivered and fully installed anywhere in the world
  • The top-of-the-range package, ‘Film2Film450’, includes everything in the 400 package plus Diamant from HS-ART, which provides more manual and automatic image restoration tools, and a total of 40Tb RAID storage. It can be installed anywhere in the world for just £450K including full training and 12 months warranty on all equipment
Simon Clark, Business Development Manager at Cintel, said: “We will be showing all elements of the ‘Film2Film’ workflows on Stand 7.B35 at the IBC exhibition, including diTTo evolution, imageMill2 with Grace, Steady, Origin and Colourflow, the DefinityHD film recorder from CCG and the Rain data colour correction system from Marquise Technologies.
"There is a growing need worldwide to restore old and degraded film, and the ‘Film2Film’ workflow system solutions provide all the equipment from one supplier to do this at an extremely competitive turnkey package price."
